The Simpsons

Realty Bites - S9-E9

Continuity mistake: Snake has an earring in his right ear, but in some shots the earring is missing then reappears, or it switches to his left ear. Also, when Homer and Snake are fighting on the hood of the car Homer's right shoe falls off, but when the car speeds toward the Murder House, Homer is wearing both of his shoes while he and Snake are still fighting on the hood.

Skinner's Sense of Snow - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: When Skinner dismisses the kids from school, we learn the snow level is near the top of the windows and to the top of the doors. But in the next scene, we see a shot of Springfield and the Simpson home, where the snow level is to the bottom of the door. (00:08:02)

Homer and Apu - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: Apu grabs the ham and crosses out of the expiration date with a thick black marker. When he places the ham on the shelf the black marker cross out is gone and the writing on the pack looks perfectly printed as before.

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

TV Announcer: The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield. It's all here: fast kicking, low scoring. And ties? You bet.
Bart: Hey Dad, how come you've never taken us to see a soccer game?
Homer: I don't know.
TV Announcer: You'll see all your favorite soccer stars. Like Arriaga, Arriaga II, Barriaga, Aruglia, and Pizzozza.
Homer: Oh, I've never heard of those people.
TV Announcer: And they'll all be signing autographs.
Homer: Woohoo!
TV Announcer: This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on Earth. Mexico or Portugal.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
